The Boat

Clients will comfortably fish from out new custom fitted out sportfishing vessel ‘ME & JEW II’.  The Extreme boats 540 center console is a very capable vessel at speed and at rest. Constructed from plate aluminium to handle NZ bay/coastal condtions, it finds itself at home on the waters of Sydney harbour, Broken bay and the upper Hawkesbury R. plus it’s many tributaries.

The vessel is in AMSA survey and is fully insured for guided charter fishing activities in NSW for your peace of mind, a large center console allows clients’ full 360 degree access around the vessel when fighting that fish of your dreams, additionally there are ample rod holders, a large 45lt live bait tank, berley pot, 90lt esky/ice box, under floor kill tank, full height sides all the way around the vessel, seating for 4pax, LED under gunnel lighting plus navigation lights rounds off this very fishy vessel.

Getting us to our fishing spots and back safely and efficently is undertaken by a quiet 90hp Yamaha four stroke outboard motor . For stealth and manouverability when we are targeting species such as Bream, Flathead, Estuary perch and Mulloway, a Minn Kota 80lb bow mount electric motor is fitted on the bow. A pair of Cannon down riggers are fitted aft to help get baits down to where the fish are holding and feeding.

To find that fish holding structure, Dan utilises the Lowrance HDS live 12 inch sounder/fish finder and GPS unit to great effect and is more than happy to help clients better understand the finer points of reading sounders while on board.

SSA only uses quality Shimano rods and  Shimano reels. Currently there is a full complement of Terez, Zodius, T-Curve and Jewel rods matched to  Stradic Ci4, Vanford and Saragosa reels in sizes 1000, 2500, 5000 and 8000. These outfits allow clients the right tool for the job when targeting multiple species whilst on charter.
